Popular News

A dwarf cow called Rani, nurtured at Shikar Agro Industries Limited at Charigram area of Ashulia in Savar, died on Thursday prior to being listed in Guinness World Records as the world’s shortest cow.    

The dwarf cow of the Boxer Bhutti breed died of excessive gas accumulated in the stomach, said Abdul Motalib, deputy assistant livestock officer in Savar upazila. 

The 24-month-old Bhutti, or Bhutanese, cow stood just 51cm (20in) high, and weighed 28kg (62Ib).

The process of being listed in the Guinness World Records as the world’s shortest cow already started. But before that ‘Rani’ died.

Rani had been looking ill since morning. When she was taken to the veterinary hospital, the doctor declared her dead. 

It was initially suspected that the dwarf cow died of excessive gas in her stomach.

Mentionable, Rani had trouble with walking and she was a bit skittish around the other cows on the farm. For this, the farmer named Howladar kept Rani separate from the rest of the herd.
